    thanks. When he allowed me to draw him for my book project I gave my word that his face wouldn’t be seen and nothing personal.

    wonderful tone work in this one…really get a strong sense of the 3rd dimension…(still awaiting some colour work…how about coloured crayons as an intermedery until you pluck up the courage to get back into painting.)

    I keep thinking of that. I have one color pencil drawing I did of Captain America I did a year ago or so. Maybe I should post it here?
